Lukasz Piwek is chipping away at a collection of Tufte-style charts using R, along with the code snippets. Fittingly, the project is called Tufte in R. The Tufte stuff is nice and all, but that's not why I like this project. Two reasons.
The second reason is that Piwek makes each chart using the three main graphical systems in R: base, lattice, and ggplot2, showing the flexibility that all three allow. At the end of the day, these are tools, and if you know what you're doing, you can make what you want. [Thanks, Lukasz]
